Something about the move to Liverpool has really allowed Daniel Sturridge to show his ability.

Not only has he been able to turn good form into goals, the reintroduction of Luis Suarez has allowed him the opportunity to work with the best and improve further.

The work of boss Brendan Rodgers has also got to be recognised, giving Sturridge the freedom to get the best out of him.

Sturridge started his career at Manchester City and was a highly-regarded English youngster. Unfortunately he was not given the opportunity that his talent possessed and was dismissed without the option of a new contract, leaving the door open to Chelsea.

In the early parts of his Chelsea career, he was used from the bench and used the experience to utilise his ability, before taking a loan move to Bolton where he scored eight goals in 12 appearances.

He returned to Chelsea expecting chances to recreate his fine form at Bolton, however he was played on the wing which was not his desired position. Sturridge was often criticised for his greedy play but it was obvious that he had attacking strengths. 

Rodgers then brought the forward to Anfield with Suarez being the only option in that position. Sturridge was instantly given the chance to play in the colours of red and being an instant hit with the Liverpool fans.

He has scored 15 goals in 20 games and has also improved his decision-making, creating a strikeforce 'as good as any', according to his manager.

Sturridge has gained the confidence in front of goal to become a match-winner and the relationship between himself and Suarez is a threat towards any team in the league.

He got given the chance to play as a striker at Liverpool and it has really paid off for himself and the team.
